World's Worst Victory

Ladies and gentlemen, here is your new 'World's Ugliest Dog'

As far as titles go, "World's Ugliest Dog" sounds like one most canines would rather not win, but that's too bad for two-year-old mutt Peanut.

Peanut's owner, Holly Chandler, entered the dog in the 25th annual competition to bring attention to the traumas of pet abuse, and she said she will use the $1,500 prize to pay for other injured animals' veterinary expenses. While Peanut is healthy now, he was seriously burned as a puppy, resulting in the unsightly, hairless patches all over his body, reports The Associated Press.

Serious story aside, you have to admit it's rather entertaining to look at just how weird some of these little guys are. Below, images of Peanut, along with several other seriously ugly competitors. --Sarah Eberspacher
